Penmanship
posted:
I found these exercises in penmanship in a dusty hardbound edition of the Farmers Manual, published in 1895.



They trend from the ornamental to the bizarre.

From the book:


'The copies of the penmanship department are from the pens fo the best penmen in America. They should be carefully studied and used as copies for practice. A few months of faithful work will make a good penman of the the poorest writer.'
